Monarch Beach Resort debuts BOURBON STEAK ORANGE COUNTY, the property’s new Michael Mina restaurant and bar. After closing the successful Stonehill Tavern last December, Monarch Beach Resort has set out to further enhance resort’s dining scene with a stunning new look and modernized culinary concept.
The March 2018 opening will be led by the restaurant’s new Executive Chef Bryan Brown, Sommelier Michelle Morin and General Manager Amber Ault. The menu highlights Chef Michael Mina’s signature butter-poached and dry-aged prime steaks along with creative-yet-refined dishes showcasing locally sourced, seasonal ingredients. Executive Chef Bryan Brown helms the kitchen, with signature dishes unique to its coastal Southern California location including Smokin’ Hot Shellfish Platter, Beet Tartare and The OC Lobster Salad.
The spirits program pays homage to classic cocktails, inspires with modern interpretations of heritage blends, and offers guests a throwback hospitality touch that will bridge the gap between vintage and modern: BOURBON STEAK’s first martini cart which serves an elevated experience tableside. The wine program features a robust library of wines from both the old and the new world, that pair perfectly with signature dishes.
Designed by Bishop Pass, the new restaurant is a blend of steakhouse confidence and coastal sophistication where deals are made in leather booths, friends gather at the solid walnut bar surrounded by linen and metallic cork walls, with panoramic Ocean views enjoyed from the dining room and terrace.
Comprising six restaurants, most of them ocean view, Monarch Beach Resort offers a collection of dining locations that team seasonally inspired ingredients, reputable service and a coastal ambience unrivaled by any resort in the area.
